Franz Albert Nürnberger Violin Bow, Markneukirchen c 1910

£6,000

Franz Albert Nürnberger Violin Bow, Markneukirchen circa 1910This is a very fine early 20th century Tourte model Nürnberger bow, bearing a “Saxony” brand on the underside of the stick behind the frog. The stick is of octagonal section red-brown pernambuco, mounts are silver and ebony. The condition is exceptional, with no issues to report.

What makes Nürnberger bows so highly prized? It must surely be the fact that you could play your way through a hundred, they would all be different, but they would all be good and eminently usable. However, the quintessential Nürnberger would be 63 grams, responsive yet smooth, imperturbable, yet capable of moments of brilliance. That’s what we have here – one of the nicest examples I’ve come across from the best period of the shop’s history. It draws a great sound without appearing to make any effort!

Length 74.3cm, weight 60.9 grams
